Saint Paul folk rockers Communist Daughter released an excellent sophomore album late last year named The Cracks That Built The Wall, and I had the hardest time in the world tearing myself away from endless listens of that gorgeously put together record. Do yourself a favor and check out that album on iTunes, here. If you need further convincing, I beseech you to dive into their compelling new video for tender pastoral, melancholic rustling, and harmonic lilting album single Keep Moving. Despite my love for Communist Daughter’s latest album, I managed to miss out on seeing them live on tour. I may get my opportunity to make that up when we all converge in Austin next month for SXSW.

Even though Minneapolis indie rock band Communist Daughter has been around since 2009, I’m abashed to confess that they’re relatively new on my radar. The band, who named themselves after a Neutral Milk Hotel song, happens to be preparing for the release of a long awaited second album. Hold Back is the second single revealed off of The Cracks That Built the Wall. It’s a steady chugging folk rock song both dusty intimate and breezy buoyant. Hold Back reverberates heartily, a complex blend of acoustic elements and male-female harmonies that draw me deeply into its rich hooking resonance. New album The Cracks That Built The Wall will be out on October 21st. The band also released a music video for the album’s lead single last week. Watch the visualizer for pensive lilting Roll A Stone below.
